Feliz Navidad II!!


I have to separate the holiday gatherings in order to differentiate the donors and participants.  Last night, the 23rd, Reggie, my Peace Corps Volunteer friend posted to Cane, a small aldea about 20 minutes from La Paz, brought her two children to the Fundacion Senor San Jose with gifts from the states.  They had flown in that day arriving at 1PM to Tegucigalpa’s Toncontin airport.  Reed and Devlin, tired as they were, joined right in and distributed the presents to the eager children who had been waiting for them.  Many thanks to the children of the Vail Mountain School in Colorado who bought the gifts and sent short notes written in Spanish to each child residing at the orfanato.  And a big thank you to the teachers who surprised Sister Edith with the digital camera for which she had been praying.
